How'd he get to The Blue™?
Andrew passed on offers from Nevada, Rice, North Texas and Army to head to the Blue. Pulling 3-star kids from Texas isn’t always easy, but the Broncos made it happen in Andrew’s case.
I felt like this was a nice nod back to his very first OBNUG countdown...sniffle...
I know I already used this one, but he’s a dead ringer for James Marsden if James Marsden had a bit more to him.
Andrew was a four-year starter at East Central, earning first team all-district as a junior and a senior, playing left tackle and center respectively. He was also listed honorable mention all-state as a senior.
Last season he was a part of a Joe Moore semi-finalist offensive line for the Broncos, which topped the offensive yards per game in the MW with 472.8 ypg. He also contributed to an offensive line that help the Broncos reach 298.3 passing yards per game - good enough for 15th nationally.
It feels like Andrew just got here, yet here we are in his senior year. Based on some departures and his familiarity with the playbook, I see Andrew swapping playing time with Mason Hampton at center.
While I don’t have the best grasp of lineman and where they might play, I was under the impression that Donte Harrington would also play center for the Broncos. I anticipate that Hampton with get the first snaps at center, and Tercek will, at worst, be his back-up. Barring injury, I don’t expect that to change a ton outside of maybe blow-out games in which Harrington might get a few more snaps to gain more experience. We’ll see how fall camp goes.
Is he on Twitter?

Despite being one of the least popular Girl Scout cookies, Andrew continues to buy the Thanks-a-Lot Cookies to stay brushed up on various languages.
